New Building in Place of Old

There was a nasty socialist style building sitting on this spot for decades. Thankfully, it was torn down and after much wait, the scaffolding disappeared and this is what graces the spot. Not exactly classical architecture, but it is shiny and new.
This is a side street next to it which leads to the Danube and the promenade. On the right are restaurants and casinos luring visitors to spend time and money.

It is indeed shiny! The reflections at different times of the day must be interesting!

It's all right when new buildings are shiny, otherwise...

A strange looking building, but that's just the reason why I like it, it's rather unique..

I like it!

They’ve done wonders in making something original out of something not so grand. I can think of a few buildings here in Hobart that could be done up it this way!

Oh my goodness it is indeed very shiny but as you say it's also new so that's a good thing.

PS: glad I'm not the window cleaner :)
